Over the last few years many inventions have been developed. Some are for our entertainment and others are for our Health, and others shouldnt have had time wasted on them in the first place! There have been two major things invented to (supposedly) help global warming.

1. Hybrid Cars
These cars are small, have slow acceleration, and will not get you anywhere fast if you really need it(Ever wonder why you see no Hybrid Cop Cars?). O and they only get you about two more miles per gallon than a normal car of that ouny inconvenient size. In this vehicle you will also stay single probably for your entire life. They are not pleasing to the eye at all! These vehicles are inconvenient and all-together a total waste of the gigantic amount of money you have to pay for such a puny vehicle.

2. LCD Lights
My tiny little cell phone that is about the size of a deck of cards has a light on the front, and finally (after two months of trying to figure out how to turn it on) i turned it on. This little light you would expect not to have any power at all is the brightest light in my house! I have also seen LCD lights decorating christmas trees and they looked awesome! LCD lights are exellent and have a resonable price. These little things are conveniant!

Global Warming is a big subject now days....if you actually believe it. People are inventing hundreds of items to slow global warming. I will not use one untill its BETTER than what we already have, such as LCD lights.

this debate to me seems like a question of morals. should we inconvenience our self's (namely by using objects that slow global warming) to help the good of man kind. i should think so seeing as the objects that would use are of little inconvenience to us. and about the hybrid car u mentioned... u make me laugh it is soooo funny. when you said that it is not pleasing to the eye, you pretend that you cant possibly change how the outside of you car look. further more the technology behind this car is meant for city life. do you need to get from 0 to 60 mph in 4 seconds? no. most people get these big cars like hummers and drive them around the city. there is no point in using a car with high torque to take your kids to school. and when you say that these cars are slow you seem to miss the whole point of the gas side of the hybrid. electric cars are way too slow so hybrids used gas to get to those highway speeds you might want to go at.

Sorry, in my before statement I had meant LED`s i got the two mixed up. Anyways. You have argued that the hybrid car is just like any other considering the build and the switch between uses of energy. Ill take myself at a wrong. But, is all of that worth the ridiculously high price compared to normal cars of its size? Is saving the Ozone layer really worth that much money on something very few people use? Lower the price of the car and make it so a cop can use it and I will use one. Because it will be better.

I would like to know exactly how much you know about global warming. you ask if the ozone layer is really worth saving for the price of a car. i would like to point out that the skin cancer rate is higher then it ever has been and the link to the ozone layer and skin cancer has been proven. i say that if you only want to drive around the city not only will you lessen your carbon foot print (Google it if you don't know what that is) a great way is to buy a hybrid. if you are so concerned about your every last bit of money do other things, like composting, using water efficient water nozzles, buy organic food, environmentally friendly paper that in the long run will save you money. in this way you can save money and lessen your carbon foot print (if you are really environmentally friendly like me then you will have a negative carbon foot print).

You know if people really wanted to stop global warming they would try getting the big problems affecting it fixed! There is one major things affecting global warming that no liberal or enviromentalist has even tried fighting against: 1. China is the biggest producer of greenhouse gases. To equal the output of gases released we would have to drive around 3 billion ford expeditions. Obviously from this statistic it proves that vehicles are not the biggest thing affecting global warming. So why waste so much money on something that will barely help in the first place!

i see SOMEONE has been doing some research. however i know exactly your point and i say that you are off your original point. you said as your point at the beginning

>>>"Global Warming is a big subject now days....if you actually believe it. People are inventing hundreds of items to slow global warming. I will not use one until its BETTER than what we already have, such as LCD lights."<<<

what difference does it make if China is producing the most pollution (and people ARE trying to stop with negotiations) to our debate?

because you have made no debate i cannot pose any argument.

I have to agree with sethgecko13 (The only time I have) with his statement about electric cars. No kidding with that Tesla Roadster! Too bad it costs $100K!

oh that makes sense. Anyways, i know khaylitsa personally and I know how informed he is on the environment in general, and he proved it in this debate (unlike his other one, hehe).

organic farming puts less chemicals into the surrounding nature. less pesticides and artificial fertilizers the better.

lol ok vinavinx, i wish you the best luck!

Umm, khaylitsa, I know you're an environmentalist and a lover of nature, but how exactly does buying organic food help fight global warming? I'm not saying you're wrong or anything, just wondering.

O well, im amature im still learning how to do all this. Im getting the hang of it though.

khaylitsa needs to improve the way he addresses an argument. But he is right in what he says. vinavinx, shorack is right.

I think you mean LEDs (light-emitting diodes). LCDs (liquid crystal displays) weren't designed with the intention of being energy-efficient (and they're also not used for Christmas lights).

Why do you need a car with a lot of acceleration? So you can hurry up to wait at the next stoplight? If hybrids don't have enough pick-up for you, try electric cars; they'll blow the doors off of anything you've got in your garage:

How do you expect people to debate about wheter you'll do that or not?

I believe you need to describe better what the debate is about and what being Pro/Con more or less will mean. ;)
